Eric Merchant Great mix of traditional and experimental elements. Another commenter noted how well the bass sits in the mix, and I wanted to echo that sentiment... Favorite track: IV.

Ben Harris One of the most eccentric black metal records I've heard in a long time. Unique without resorting to gimmickry and unwarranted tropes, the riffs are memorable yet skewed. Everything sounds artfully off-kilter, stanzas shift subtly in tempo and tone, and the more traditionally metal elements are accompanied and enhanced by alienating ambient/melodic passages recalling the deceptively primitive output of more esoteric dungeon synth groups. Favorite track: IV.

Jonas If you believe bass isn't important in black metal then this album will change your mind. Dark fasmigoric atmosphere will haunt your medieval soul.

fables in death This album is one of the best albums I have heard in a long long time. It has the atmosphere of classic emperor and burzum with the melodic song writing of yellow eyes, instant record order for me. Favorite track: V.
